: are parts made for american cars made in japan? >> a lot of parts. this is how it's going to affect almost everybody. you're getting a lot of parts no matter what. it may be electronic chips, may be transmissions. i don't think anyone has a handle on the situation, how bad it might get. it looks like it will affect toyota more than anyone else. all their plants in japan have been down, some getting back up. honda will be affected. definitely going to be pressure at the dealership level to keep the prices up, especially on models that are in high demand. so i don't expect there will be a lot of bargains for consumers this spring. probably going to be summer before the situation rectifies itself. if you're looking for something like a prius or honda fit that the supply is going to be limited, wait a couple of months. it will probably get better. >>> hello, everyone. i'm don lemon. welcome to the second hour of the cnn "newsroom" here at cnn headquarters in atlanta. a lot of news to get you caught up on in libya. but first look at amazing new video captured on march 11th on the tsunami in jap

. the american-led bombing of libya. and the nuclear crisis in japan. one major question about the assault on libya, what happened to the media's skepticism? u.s. war planes hitting targets in libya for a second day today and i have to say this at the outset. the media get excited by war, the journalistic insulin starts pumping as we talk about cruise missiles and put up the maps and have retired generals on and sometimes something is lost, reminds me of eight years ago when shock and awe was reigned down upon baghdad and the media failed to ask questions. i looked at my "new york times" this morning and looked at my "washington post" and didn't see any editorials about the no-fly position. to newspapers don't see the excepty cal questions. what are if they are american casualties? do you stop this operation with gadhafi still in power? these are the questions we need to be asking. to help us answer them. rome hartman, former executive producer of the cbs news. and jamie mcentear, founder of the line of departure blog and former correspondent for cnn. where are the skeptical questions? >>
